"In 1882 the British Empire was still the dominant power in the Carolinas. They held the vast majority of North Carolina as the Empire of the West Indies, a colonial monarchy with moderate levels of self-rule. The EWI was far more developed than other nations in the region. Their only true rival on the continent was the United Empire of Carolina, a former Imperial Spanish colony with a federal monarchy based on that of Germany, but even the UEC had barely two thirds of the EWI's economic and productive capacity, and it was still far behind in terms of population, military and international influence. It would not be until 1927 that Britain's dominance in North Carolina would be threatened when a more developed and advanced UEC would join the Great War against the Entente Pact." - Contemporary History and Politics by Willem Baantjer.
